Poppy Bottle

Regular price $675.00

This is a large wood fired stoneware bottle. It has a porcelain slip and underglazes used to decorate the exterior. It was fired on its side in my wood kiln for 95 hours. The natural ash glaze come from the wood fuel used to heat the kiln. 
My 6 year old daughter helped with the drawing/painting on the exterior of the jar. 

Approximately 26” tall by 10” diameter 

I have written a book, Low Fire Soda, about many of the processes involved in creating this piece. Many surface variations exist on this pottery which I find interesting and fun. I often add sand, small pieces of feldspar, or other additives to create textures within the clay. I also dip each piece in a porcelain slip to add contrast between the dark clay, and the light color of slip. These added variations can cause surface cracks, textures, and other unexpected outcomes. This is what I'm seeking.

If, for whatever reason, you're unhappy with the variations on this piece, please inquire about an exchange. I'm aware that these experimentations are not always what everyone is seeking. This research is ever evolving, and I'm pleased you're taking part in this research with my by supporting my work with a purchase.

Thank you.
